Assume Bob sends an Elgamal encrypted message to Alice. Wrongly, Bob uses the same parameter i for all messages.

Assume Bob sends an Elgamal encrypted message to Alice. Wrongly, Bob
uses the same parameter i for all messages. Moreover, we know that each of Bob’s
cleartexts start with the number x1 = 21 (Bob’s ID). We now obtain the following
ciphertexts
(kE,1 = 6,y1 = 17),
(kE,2 = 6,y2 = 25).
The Elgamal parameters are p = 31,α = 3,β = 18. Determine the second plaintext
x2.
